That was some great Super Bowl the Ravens and 49ers gave us, but now football season is officially over and many die-hard fans are beginning to experience a little post-Super Bowl depression.
Just as smokers go through withdrawal after they quit smoking, some fans experience the same feelings of withdrawal when the sport they've followed so closely for more than five months is suddenly gone. In fact, some health experts say that "football withdrawal" is an actual medical condition that has an affect on the brain, causing people to be irritable and grumpy.
A study conducted by Loyola University (Chicago) Health System recommends a slow withdrawal. You know, watch some highlights and NFL Network re-runs, and slowly get back into living your life without football. But if you're still painting your face in March, you may way to seek counseling. (Forbes)
